About the Author

Judy Bennett is just your average, down-to-earth gal with a tendency to take an idea way too far. She is a native of Portland, Oregon, and her hobbies include exploring new or underappreciated venues for food, drink, shopping, art, and culture. Professionally, she is a physical therapist assistant, actress, model, and owner of a vintage beachwear emporium called Thousand Island Dressing. In her personal life, she has been happily married seven times to the same fabulous man! Some of her Bloody Mary recipes can be found in Chili Pepper Magazine and Grocery Gardening, by Jean Ann Van Krevelen, and she is also the author of If You re Old and You Know It, Clap Your Hands: How to Grow Old--And Love It.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book intertwines humor, history, fun facts and recipes pertaining to our shared interest—the beloved Bloody Mary.

In her introduction, Bennett writes, “Why Bloody Marys? Come on. Anyone can pour wine into a glass and pronounce it ‘eviscerated’ or ‘petillant,’ but who else besides Mary can inspired a whole dossier?”

As if you needed an excuse to enjoy this drink, Bennett’s book contains 45 different Bloody Mary recipes designed to fit any mood and situation.

There’s the “Remind me why I’m going skydiving tomorrow,” a recipe that’s equal parts gumption and liquid courage; the “We should go to Hawaii more often,” featuring ginger and Thai basil; and more.

For Wisconsin folk, there’s even the “Go Packers,” an Official Packers Bloody Mary Tailgate Recipe.

Each recipe is accompanied by Bennett’s wit and snark—use caution when drinking a Bloody while reading this book… snorting out Bloody Marys, in particular ones that contain hot sauce, pepper and/or horseradish, could really hurt.

For a garnish, Bennett throws in some gems such as 6 women who have been nicknamed Bloody Mary throughout history; variations of the Bloody Mary containing different ingredients than your typical tomato juice and vodka combo (i.e. the “Bloody Fairy”—tomato juice and absinthe!); and more.

If you’re a fan of the Bloody, you’ll want to make sure to devour this book.
